Abstract [en]

The research area of wireless sensor network (WSN) witnessed an increased attention in the last few´years due to the great potential to allow a comprehensive monitoring of the environment. With the sensing technology of WSN large areas can be monitored allowing for a comprehensive study of the environment. Handling WSN requires prior knowledge about the technology and this becomes an issue for a first time user, unable to explore the whole potential of the networks. Incorporating WSN technology with voice recognition technology allows the creation of a platform for developing new innovative user interactions. This report presents a novel voice user interface for understanding wireless networks by integrating the voice recognition features of the Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU) toolkit with wireless sensor nodes allowing a first time user to interact with a wireless sensor network through voice input.The voice user interface software allows a new user to collect data from the network through voice input enabled by conversing with an animated agent. The software is highly extensible and its envisioned future deployment will be to teach Irish secondary school students more about wireless technology.
